The mission of the Little Bennett Elementary School Media
Center is to provide equitable access to materials in a variety of
formats to ensure students and staff are effective users of ideas and
information, and can explore personal interests, and their love of
reading in an open and friendly environment.
The overall vision of the media program is to provide a
welcoming environment where all members of the school community can
access information and materials that support the curriculum and focus
on personal interests. The media center is a meeting place for
professional growth and student study. In addition, the media center
provides intellectual and physical access to materials in all formats;
provides instruction to foster competence and stimulate interest in
reading, viewing, and using information and ideas. The media center
staff works collaboratively with other educators to design learning
strategies to meet the needs of individual students. Finally, the staff
in the media center will nurture a love of reading through modeling and
book talks and the pursuit of personal interests.
The media center and its mission should be guided by the needs of the
individual school, but should remain student-centered and be a place
where all members of the school community feel welcome and know they
will receive the highest quality of service. Additionally, the media
center will incorporate the beliefs and standards adopted by the
American Library Association.
